Now playing in Congress: Dog and pony show.

Posted by keithosaunders on January 7, 2011

You can’t make this stuff up.  The new Republican congress is dedicated to slashing spending, thereby making it impossible for the sick to receive health care and the unemployed to receive relief.  Before they got down to the business of spreading hopelessness to the unemployed there was a show to put on — a reading of the U.S. constitution. 

This would have been corny in high school but the fact that elected officials — grown men and women who are ostensibly working — have to waste our time in an Orwellian act of patriotism is mind-boggling to put it mildly.  I’m hoping they’ll go over weights and measures tomorrow.  I’m a little rusty in that department.    

During the reading of the section that states that the president must be a U.S. citizen, some nimrod in the gallery yelled out, “Except for Obama!”  Yes, that old chestnut. 

 I love how there is a name for these kind of people:  Birthers.  It’s like a cult.  No matter how much evidence is presented to the contrary birthers swear that Obama is not a citizen.  Isn’t it amazing how easily the country was taken over by an Arab communist?  Seriously, I am thankful that I was not born a birther.  Imagine the fear that permeates these cretin’s existence.  It has to be exhausting. 

CNN, that hard-hitting news station, dug deep and came up with a constitutional activist — Janine Turner.    What a surprise — a blond pundit!   She looked like Howdy Doody on acid.  Turner carefully explained that she was not a birther, but that she had grave concerns about where Obama’s birth certificate was.  Turner defended the congressional heckler by saying it was a symbolic act.  I would agree — it symbolizes the systematic dumbing down of our population.
